Words To Live By

Now I know these little tidbits have been around forever. But, I think if it’s worth saying it’s worth saying more than once. And besides, I’m a big believer in karma.

Abbreviated Instructions For Living

Give people more than they expect and do it cheerfully.

Don’t believe all you hear, spend all you have or sleep all you want.

When you say, “I’m sorry”, look the person in the eye.

Never laugh at anyone’s dreams. People who don’t have dreams, don’t have much.

In disagreements, fight fairly.

Don’t judge people by their relatives.

Remember that great love and great achievements involve great risk.

When you lose, don’t lose the lesson.

Remember the three R’s:

·       Respect for self

·       Respect for others

·       Responsibility for all your actions

When you realize you’ve made a mistake, take immediate steps to correct it.

Smile when picking up the phone. The caller will hear it in your voice.

Spend some time alone.

Quotes & Sayings

“The real differences around the world today are not between Jews and Arabs; Protestants and Catholics; Muslims, Croats, and Serbs. The real differences are between those who embrace peace and those who would destroy it; between those who look to the future and those who cling to the past; between those who open their arms and those who are determined to clench their fists.” ~William J. Clinton

“In the time of your life, live – so that in that wondrous time you shall not add to the misery and sorrow of the world, but shall smile to the infinite variety and mystery of it.”~William Saroyan

“Let there be peace on earth
And let it begin with me.”
~Seymour Miller & Jill Jackson

A Dog’s Prayer

I posted this poem on Facebook a while back. I like it so much that I decided to share it with those of you who might not have seen it.

       A Poem by Beth Norman Harris

Treat me kindly, my beloved master, for no heart in all the world is more grateful for kindness than the lov­ing heart of mine.

 Do not break my spirit with a stick, for though I should lick your hand between the blows, your pa­tience and under­standing will more quickly teach me the things you would have me do.

 Speak to me often, for your voice is the world’s sweetest mu­sic, as you must know by the fierce wagging of my tail when your footsteps fall upon my waiting ear.

 When it is cold and wet, please take me in­side, for I am now a domesticated animal, no longer used to bit­ter elements. And I ask no greater glory than the privilege of sitting at your feet or on your lap or laying beside you in your bed

 Keep my pan filled with fresh water, for although I should not reproach you were it dry, I cannot tell you when I suffer thirst. Feed me clean food, that I may stay well, to romp and play and do your bidding, to walk by your side.

 And, beloved master, should the great Mas­ter see fit to deprive me of my health or sight, do not turn me away from you. Rather hold me gently in your arms as skilled hands grant me the merciful boon of eternal rest – and I will leave you knowing with the last breath I drew, my fate was ever safest in your hands.

No one will give you as much aloha as your dog!
